Attorney General Never Read the Arizona Immigration Bill

For the sake of not looking like an idiot, it is a must to be educated before bloviating stupidity. In this case, it would be the whole Obama Administration. From Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano statement that the Time Square bomber was a solo act to Congress never reading any bill before they vote on it, how far does it take before misinformation becomes serious? With the Arizona Immigration bill which passed not too long ago, everybody from Obama to the US Attorney General are making generalizations of the bill without ever reading it. I would call it ignorant.

Attorney General Eric Holder has been quoted to say on “Meet the Press” that the Arizona Immigration Law has the possibility to lead to racial profiling. He continued to say that it is unfortunate that the law may likely be unconstitutional because such powers are reserved for the federal government.

But like the idiot he is, Holder told the House judiciary Committee the following:

“I’ve just expressed concerns on the basis of what I’ve heard about the law. But I’m not in a position to say at this point, not having read the law, not having had the chance to interact with people are doing the review, exactly what my position is.”

As stated, Holder has never read the bill. He has his staff brief him on their conclusions. Holder wants his staff to search criteria if the Arizona Bill can be challenge in federal court. Let me add that the lawyers who constructed the Arizona Bill knew it would be challenged. They took the Federal Statute and adopted it for their own use, with minor revisions to remove any gray area to the law. So, is it wrong to implement a legal law that is being ignored at the federal level? Washington is getting really lazy if they don’t have time in their busy (sarcasm) day to do their homework.
